The I-80 Smart Corridor in California's Bay Area is one of the most sophisticated intelligent transportation systems in the state
will use the ITS World Congress Montréal to highlight that the greatest challenge of implementing a smart city is making each of the pieces fit together. As the company points out, in an urban environment, integrating a system built decades ago with an enterprise data management solution developed months ago is difficult. Add to that the complexity of designing and building for future enhancements and technological advances, and there is a formidable task.
Parsons will highlight why the company takes a life-cycle approach to the design and implementation of smart city solutions and ensures that the work it does is practical, fundable, and efficient for today and scalable for tomorrow. The company says its approach focuses on how new technologies can fit within a smart city — not the other way around.
An example of this approach being highlighted at the event is Parsons' Intelligent Networks (iNet), a technology that the company uses for smart city and intelligent transportation system (ITS) applications. The company says this industry-leading software improves the management, efficiency, effectiveness, and safety of transportation networks. Whether it’s a utility, transit, vehicle location, highway, toll road, arterial road, or other system, iNet applies state-of-the-art operational solutions to improve decision support.
